First, I have some "house style" questions: where will the document
sit in our web space? What pages will point _to_ it? Is
it world-readable, or member-only? What
"navigation bar" links will it have at the top? Will it bear
the W3C logo? Is there an icon for this activity area?
I think the link to
http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/Disabilities should use the title
of the page, not the URL, as its label.
Then, about the content: you refer to "the alt tag." Is that
a reference to the alt attribute of the IMG element in HTML?
I have heard of an "alt tag" proposal from Netscape (though
I have never seen it) and think the way it's phrased in
the document is ambiguous.
Also, it says:
|Finalize work on OBJECT tag
| (real ALT content, client side image map).
The OBJECT tag (sic -- should be elemnt) _has_ real ALT content.
This is the major improvement over the <IMG> tag. Could you
either clarify this or strike it?
